  • Why doesn't Taylor Swift play barre chords on guitar ?

    Best answer: On the video in question she uses a capo on the 6th fret. The capo is sort of the same as using a barre finger across the neck. This allows you to use open chord voicings. It seems the song is played with 'C', 'G', 'Am' and 'F' chord shapes. Given that it's on the 6th fret, the... show more

    Given that it's on the 6th fret, the actual (same) chords will be F#, C#, D#m and B and of course you can play (and should learn to play) the same chords other ways than with the use of a capo, for instance with barre chords.
    Using a capo is a way of making things easier for you. She can match her voice and still play easier chord shapes. The big live artists have guitar techs that tune and hand you guitars as needed, with or without capos.
    Swift can probably play the same stuff without capo but who can blame her for "cheating"? In a stressful live, rehearsal or recording situation, it is often a question of efficiency and doing things as economical and easy as possible.
    As the other poster also points out, playing two or more acoustic guitars in different positions creates a very full sound, something very often used by recording artists (same goes for a 12-string and regular 6-string guitars).
